Sad News

I know I have not posted in a long time. My Mother passed away on November 22 and her Memorial service was December 1 which would have been her 83rd Birthday. In the previous post, I mentioned that she fell and broke her hip. After having a partial hip replacement she was recovering nicely and then a staph infection showed up. They went back in, removed the prosthesis and left it out. The infection turned out to be a MRSA and even with multiple IV antibiotics, her body could not recover. It is tragic but I know she is in a better place and will not have to suffer any more. My Aunt and Uncle continue to have major health issues as well. My Dad ended up in the ER two days ago but it was stress related. He has been ordered to not do any more care giving for at least three months.

My art will have to be put on the back burner for a little longer as I help my Dad get things in order. My torch will still be there when I am ready but I also have to take care of myself during this grieving period too. Thank you to all who have continued to pray for us. We could not have survived without your prayers and support.
